The city and its metropolitan region inhabit more than 1,5 million people who use a connected transportation system (bike, bus, tram, local train, train). Oslo is awarded for the “European Green Capital 2019”, by the European Commission.
Oslo is often called the EV capital of the World with more than 60,000 electric vehicles (EVs), including 40,000 BEV (Battery Electric Vehicles) and 20,000 PHEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicles) in the wider Oslo area. In 2017, there were approximately 2,000 publicly available normal chargers in Oslo as well as 32 quick chargers. The largest charging facilities are the garages Vulkan (smart charging for 100 EVs) and Akershus fortress (86 EVs).
